On February 14, energyOrbit announced that it will deliver a statewide energy savings database platform. According to the firm, it will be part of an initiative by the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility to implement a unified statewide tracking and reporting system for DESEU’s energy efficiency, conservation and renewable initiatives.

energyOrbit stressed that its database will serve not only the DESEU’s Energize Delaware program, but also select programs at the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control.

According to the firm, both groups will utilize energyOrbit’s cloud-based platform to standardize data tracking and reporting for a multitude of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs operating around the state, from low-interest revolving loans for energy efficiency and customer-sited renewables, to solar renewable energy credits procurement and home performance audits.

Per energyOrbit, DESEU was created in 2007 by the State of Delaware, and it collaborates with a variety of industry partners such as the University of Delaware and the Delaware Division of Energy and Climate.

Tony DePrima, Executive Director of the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility noted:

 While achieving our mission of bringing the most cost effective opportunities for energy savings, it only makes sense that we would employ the most efficient, cost-effective method for implementing, tracking and reporting Delaware’s energy efficiency initiatives. By engaging the energyOrbit platform, we are able to better organize, act on and report data, allowing us to continually improve our residents’ quality of life through saving money, creating jobs and improving the environment. 

Udi Merhav, CEO of energyOrbit observed: “One of our core missions is to get our clients out of spreadsheet hell and other non-collaborative, static business solutions. The DESEU and DNREC are working to better improve the lives of Delaware residents, but spending time formatting and organizing data and spreadsheets distracts from that goal. We are glad to know that through using energyOrbit, the DESEU and State of Delaware will be able to more efficiently report on data as well as monitor sustainability and savings goals all at a lower cost per unit of energy saved.”
